Knobstone Escarpments

Hiking in Southern Indiana is full of surprises! My brother and I went to the Knobstone Escarpments (http://www.indianaoutfitters.com/Destinations/Knobstone_trail.htm) last June for a lil hiking adventure. The Escarpments have a certain aura about them; the only people living nearby are the Amish, and the trailhead is off the beaten path. We ended up hiking 14 miles, growing more tired at each mile marker! The Escarpments are quite hilly. The terrain was virtually a rollercoaster ride with the rare stretch of flat trail. Some people train on this trail in aspiration of the Appalachian Trail, so we'll see. Maybe I'll tackle the giant next...
